A double chin can distract from even the most attractive person. There are several reasons behind forming a double chin.
Genetics: Just as you inherit your hair color and your eye color from your parents, you may also inherit the potential for a double chin. All you have to do is to take a look around at your family members to see if you are going to be destined for a double chin or not.
Age: Double chin seems to develop as we age. The skin becomes loose and muscle loss play a role as we age. Chin muscles, like the rest of your muscles, start to slack as you age.
Weight gain: One of the biggest reasons we develop double chin is because of excess weight. Your face and neck are the first places that respond when you lose or gain weight. This can contribute to the forming of the double chin.
Some things you cannot change, like genetics but other things you can, like weight gain. In any case there are exercises that you can do that will reduce your double chin and even prevent it.
There are muscles in your chin—work them out to increase their ability to hold the fat and skin in place.
